Howardena Pindell is an outspoken artist, writer, curator, and professor whose career reflects the spirit of a creative risk taker, seasoned traveler, and an advocate for equality. She has been an influential figure in the art world for over 40 years. The solo exhibition Howardena Pindell features her oblong and un-stretched canvases, as well as her experimentation with hole-punched dots, hand drawn arrows, printed text, and personal postcards. The exhibition spotlights Pindell’s dynamic oeuvre that blends her abstract formal sensibilities, personal memory, and activism.
